Girls’ Night Out Tag in a Bag

Crafty Secrets Tag in a Bag: Girls’  Night Out

Hello, Friends!  Every once in a while, I enjoy a good Girls’ Night Out, don’t you?  As much as we all love the men in our lives, there’s something really special about time spent in the company of women.  Last night, I enjoyed a belated birthday present and Girls’ Night out with my sweet daughter, and it got me thinking about how important it is to spend time with our gal pals.  When I sat down to create today, I wanted to make something to celebrate the special friendships we share with our girlfriends.  I found some super girly, super fun Crafty Secrets goodies and used them to make a pink and black Girls’ Night out Tag in a Bag.

Kathy by Design/Girls Night out Tag in a Bag 01Nothing says “girly girl party” like this pink and black color combo.  I painted the edges of a small kraft paper bag with Black Soot Distress Paint and then covered it with black and white polka dot paper from our Halloween Jumbo Digital Download. Next, I decorated it with  pink lipstick kisses from Girlfriends Homespun Cotton Scraps and the wonderful pink corset, clock and tag from Wonderful Women Heartwarming Vintage Stickers.

Girls Night out Tag in a Bag 02I used a scrap of the pink polka dot paper from our Radiant Digital Paper Collection as an accent paper.  The corset was matted on black and pink cardstock and then dusted with glitter.  So girly!

Girls Night out Tag in a Bag 03Topping the bag with pink gingham ribbon and black satin ribbon reinforces the color palette.  And then adding some sparkly white iridescent metallic string to the top of the tag adds even more texture and shine.

Girls Night out Tag in a Bag 05This is the tag that is tucked inside the little bag. I painted the edges of a white die cut tag with Black Soot Distress Ink. It’s covered with more of the pink dot paper from the Radiant Digital Paper Kit .  I cut out the ticket and fancy shoes from the Cotton Scraps, matting them on pink and black cardstock.

Girls Night out Tag in a Bag 06 I die cut another doily from the black and white damask paper in the Halloween Jumbo Digital Download and topped it with sparkly black brads.  The sassy lady was fussy cut from the Girlfriends Creative Scraps as is the cute ticket.

This little tag in a bag would be such a fun hostess gift for a girls’ night out, or a wonderful birthday card…especially if you tuck a little gift card or individually wrapped chocolate inside the bag along with the tag.  I can see these made in all kinds of themes: bridal showers, baby showers, housewarming, Christmas, Secret Pal…the list goes on and on!  The great news is that the Cotton Scraps, Creative Scraps and Stickers are all on sale in the Crafty Secrets online store.

What would you put in your tag in a bag?  If you’re interested in purchasing this Girls’ Night Out Tag in a Bag, you can find it in my ETSY shop.

    Oops! I just wrote this long winded comment and lost it! Kathy, this is a wonderful gift for a girlfriend for one of those special occasions you mentioned…what girl wouldn’t want to receive such a beautiful and fun gift?! Kathy, I don’t know how you do it…I am beginning to think there are way more than one Kathy’s knocking all these wonderful creations out! I love those berry bead clusters and are on my shopping list for when I’m back to work. I love all these great little details you put on this…those berry sprays, the STICK PINS!!!, the pink lipstick kisses, the glittered corset all on top of that must have black and white dotted paper! Really, Kathy, this is such a creative project, filled with so much love and attention to detail, as always! Big hugs, and thank you for the much needed inspiration!

    Hello Kathy this is adorable. The colours are so pretty and feminine. The corset looks wonderful to look at not to wear. My girlfriends are so very important in my life. Looked at the radiant papers and others in range and they are lovely. Not sure how they work when you download to A4 printer though as they say 12×12? Checked on site but no info regarding it. Or am I having a bit of a blond moment!!! X

    Hi Kathy. love those shoes, but not the corset, OUCH!, glad we don’t wear them anymore. years ago I think every woman either had a corset, or guarder belt. think of the fun getting ready for shopping for a girls day out in the hot summer? Thanks for our cooler fashions..believe it or not before ac was a fordable in the summer you put your cosmetics in the refrigerator, otherwise lipstick could soft you would smear everything not wanted. Thankful for ac.
    you know your vintage cards are bringing back memories of history, to share, hope others do that too….have a good day…..always love your creations.
